As NFL free agency is just about 24 hours old, I figured I’d give everyone updates on each signing. I will continuously update this page as each signing takes place.
Since I’m a day late on all of the signings, I listed all of the major signings from the past day, and will continue with not just the big signings, but every signing as free agency continues.
The news at the top of the page is the most current news, and the news further down is the oldest.
Peyton Hillis signs with the Chiefs
After a disappointing 2011 season in Cleveland, running back Peyton Hillis is headed to Kansas City. The details of the deal are still unknown.
Hillis will serve as a backup to Jamal Charles, who is coming off of surgery for a torn ACL that he suffered early last season.
Jaguars strike deal with Laurent Robinson
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Laurent Robinson to a five-year deal.
Robinson came on to the scene in 2011, catching 11 touchdowns. Robinson will likely serve as the No.1 receiver for the Jaguars in 2012, unless the team decides to use its first-round pick on another receiver.
Cowboys sign CB Brandon Carr
After releasing veteran cornerback Terrance Newman on Tuesday, the Cowboys have signed former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr to a five-year, $50.1 million deal.
Carr recorded eight interceptions in four season with the Chiefs.
New York Giants sign TE Martellus Bennett
The New York Giants have signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
Serving as a backup to Jason Witten, Bennett recorded 85 catches for 846 yards and four touchdowns in four season with the Cowboys.
Peyton Manning visiting with the Tennessee Titans
As the Peyton Manning sweepstakes continues, Peyton Manning is reportedly in Nashville today to meet with the Tennessee Titans.
Titans owner Bud Adams has expressed serious interest in Manning, and the Titans appear to have a decent shot at landing the former Colts quarterback.
Mario Williams interested in signing with Buffalo
Former Houston Texans defensive end and former No.1 overall pick Mario Williams has spent the last day in Buffalo meeting with the Bills.
Just a few hours ago, it was reported that Williams flew his fiance to Buffalo to learn more about the city, showing his strong interest in the team.
Two former Ravens defensive players sign elsewhere
The Baltimore Ravens have lost two key starters from their defense: outside linebacker Jarrett Johnson and defensive end Cory Redding.
Johnson, who was being courted by the New York Jets, signed a four-year deal with the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday.
Redding decided to follow his former defensive coordinator, Chuck Pagano, to Indianapolis, as he signed a three-year deal on Tuesday.
Buccaneers strike deals with three top players
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasted no time in making a splash in free agency. The team signed former San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson to a five-year deal on Tuesday, and signed former Saints offensive guard Carl Nicks on Tuesday.
To go along with the Nicks signing, it was announced that the Bucs signed former Detroit Lions cornerback Eric Wright, who recorded four interceptions for the Lions in 2011.
St. Louis lands the top CB in free agency, Cortland Finnegan
The St. Louis Rams have signed former Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan to a five-year deal that is reportedly worth $50 million.
Finnegan was widely considered the top free-agent cornerback, and he will reunite with his former head coach, Jeff Fisher.
Chargers land wide receiver Robert Meachem
The San Diego Chargers have signed former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem to a four-year deal, reportedly worth $25 million.
Meachem is expected to be the team’s No.1 receiver, filling the void left by Vincent Jackson.
Redskins bolster receiving corp
The Washington Redskins made two key free agent signings on Tuesday, with both of those signings being wide receivers.
The Redskins signed former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Pierre Garcon, who had 70 catches in 2011, to a five-year deal. Also, the team signed former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Josh Morgan.
